Description

Location and History

About one kilometer to the north of Al Masjid Al Haram lies the huge, walled cemetery known as Jannah al Mu’allah. The term “Jannah al Mu’alla” means ‘The Most Exalted Paradise’ and it is also known as the ‘Cemetery of Mu’alla’ or ‘Al Hajun’. This site is historically important to Muslims because this is the site where many of the ancestors and relatives of the Prophet Muhammad are buried.

Structure

Many domes and structures have been built over the known graves through the years. In 1925, many historic landmarks in the area were demolished by the Saudi King of the time, Ibn Saud, including this cemetery. Because of this, no original graves or tombstones have survived. The graves are now distinguished by small piles of rocks. Since there are no distinguishable tombstones, people now pay respects to the entire area in general. The site has free access all year long.

Prominent graves in Jannat al Mua’alla

Many people integral to the basis of Islam and close to the Prophet (PBUH) are buried here. Hazrat Aminah, Hazrat Khadija, Hazrat Qasim and Abdullah, Abdul Mutlib, and Abu Talib, the mother, wife, sons, grandfather, and uncle all lie in this blessed resting place, respectively.

A cemetery in Makkah, Saudi Arabia. It is located a short distance from the Masjidul Haram. Here are the graves of Muhammad's wife Khadija bint Khuwailid, grandfather and other ancestors. Many of Muhammad's relatives were buried here before the migration.
